From the letter:
“As we head into the first quarter of , many people are gathering tax prep documents for the dreaded April 15th filing. But what about your property taxes? Do you ever feel you’re paying too much? You might be!
When you receive a Notice of Assessment showing your previous assessed value as well as the new value of your property, it may seem like the valuation is wrong. Did you know you have the right to appeal? The appeal process is available to allow property owners the opportunity to dispute the value. This can lead to lower tax bills.”
